Iain Duncan Smith resigns

Iain Duncan Smith's resignation highlights the chaos within government over cuts to disabled support. If the Secretary of State responsible for disabled support didn't support the cuts how did it ever get in the Budget? What is the Chancellor playing at?

I want to see Plymouth's Tory MPs realise the Government is wrong on Cutting Personal Independent Payments and was wrong last week when the very same MPs courting media attention this time also voted to take £30 from disability benefits then.

We need a Government and local MPs who don't go about cutting the support for the most vulnerable in society to finance tax cuts for the most wealthy.
